We were looking for IHOP and stumbled upon this place. I'm SO glad we did!! The family atmosphere is warm and inviting. The food is delicious and the service is awesome. My Mother loved her Cafe Latte. Not pricey and large portions. We will definitely be back!

Ordered buffalo wings and the mega steak burrito for take out. The wings were okay. Honestly, I'm disappointed with the burrito. In my opinion, it's overpriced and it was... bland and boring. The rice was just plain white rice and the meat itself didn't have any special seasoning. The staff, however, was very friendly and the café was kept clean.

Stumbled upon this place in search of a good breakfast burrito. Ended up discovering so much more. Sunday at noon, all tables full, people happy, food looks amazing coming out. We ordered a bacon breakfast burrito to go and will 100% be back to explore more of the menu. Looking forward to trying some of the juices! What a find! Great prices too!

The food wasn’t bad but that’s a bit pricey. (Also got the chicken soup , pancake platter and iced coffee)

Good place. Need to try more stuff but the chicken quesadilla was excellent! Update - tried the giant steak burrito. It wasn't steak but ground beef. Misleading. Good service though.

Great food on a nice restaurant. Antique coffee grinders decorate the walls. Besides the great food, they also have a cooler with Mexican coke, jarritos and jumex.

Super friendly. Prices fair. Waitress awesome. Food was fantastic. Everything they were serving looked scrumptious. Wish I lived closer.

Absolutely delicious! I had the pleasure of trying this Cafe today for brunch. The omelette is phenomenal! The empanadas are quite tasty too. The horchata frappe is amazing. Looking forward to ordering again soon to explore more of their menu.

Amazing prices and even more delicious food . I got their breakfast Baleada and it was stunning. The wrap was buttery soft , the meat was citrusy and flavorful and the seasonings all added to the amazing flavor . Recommend for an indulgent breakfast . Didn’t like their latte much but the food keeps the score a solid 5 stars .

Esmerelda's is a true hidden gem in north Durham! I got coffee a few times when they used to be located in Northgate Mall and loved it. I was happy to hear they had opened in a new location after the mall closed. I have only had coffee and donuts from them, but their food menu has so much variety and always looks and smells delicious whenever I am there. I need to plan a full meal soon. Do not sleep on this place!!
